Instructions On Grilling Salmon

  • A side of Salmon (boned, but not skinned)
  • 2 tbsp Dijon Mustard
  • ½ tsp Garlic (finely chopped)
  • 3 tbsp Soy sauce
  • 6 tbsp Olive oil
  • You can begin by lighting charcoal briquettes in a grill. The charcoal briquettes or the grill should be at the right temperature. If the grill is too hot, the salmon will only end up getting burnt. If the grill is not hot enough, the salmon will not cook through. So here you will have to take all the right steps to ensure your grill is hot enough for the salmon to cook through. The best way to find out if the grill is at the right temperature is to see if it’s hot to the touch. A grill that is hot to the touch is usually hot enough to grill salmon to it.
  • You can get the salmon ready laying it side down on a cutting board. Here, you will have to make sure the cutting board is clean. A cutting board that is not clean can tamper with the outcome of the dish. Cut the salmon crosswise and into four equal pieces. Once you are done with this, in a separate bowl, whisk together the mustard, soy sauce, garlic and olive oil. Don’t stop whisking until you are completely sure that all ingredients are thoroughly or uniformly mixed.
  • Continue the process by drizzling around half of the marinade onto the salmon. Once this is done, allow the marinade to sit for around ten minutes or even longer if you see the need to do so.
  • Now that the prelude to grilling the salmon is done with, it is time to actually get down to grilling the salmon. Begin by placing the salmon skin side down on the hot grill. Also, throw away the marinade that’s left over in the bowl.
  • Grill one side of the salmon for around five minutes. With a wide spatula, carefully turn the salmon over and grill the turned over side for around five minutes. While you are going about the grilling, you will notice that the salmon looks a little raw in the center. Don’t let this put you away as the center portion of the fish will surely cook through as you go about grilling it!
  • With the successful implementation of the aforementioned steps, you will realize that grilling salmon is not really as difficult as people think it is.
